Islamic Perspective on Human Communication

Summary

One of the distinguishing characteristics of Islam is its emphasis on community and social interactions. The relation of the individual to society, social nature of human being, universal laws of Allah governing human community, and guidelines on how to communicate, locally and globally, with Muslims and non-Muslims are some of the major social themes of the Qur’an. Issues like kindness, being concerned with Muslims’ affairs, and informed of the situation of relatives and neighbors, promoting virtue and preventing evil, social intimacy, and also numerous communicative concepts such as cooperation (ta‘awun), mutual recognition  (mu‘arafah), and interrelationship (muraba’a), depict the outstanding place of communication in the Qur’an.
Relying on Islamic primary sources, and pondering on some of the above-mentioned themes and concept we will discuss the following titles during three weekends:

  • The importance of community and communication in Islam
  • Interpersonal communication in Islam
  • Social communication in Islam
  • Inter-cultural and inter-religious communication in Islam
